I've been going to Florentine's for years and make it a point to visit every time I'm in town. I've never had a complaint about the service, the clenliness, nor the quality of the food.

If you're in the mood for a classic-feeling italian dinner, this is one of the best places in town.

One appetizer I highly suggest is the portobello mushrooms.

Love their Gnocchi with Pomodori, but I didn't really care for anything else on the menu. Not sure if they still have the "Bag Lunch Special" for $5, but that was a good deal back in the day.

Good Italian food - Florentines is tucked away in the same shopping center as the big lamp store(can't think of the name) on Blossom Hill just before Alamden Expressway. Because many don't know its back there or they forget it's there you rarely have a wait to get a seat. The service is friendly and prompt. Prices are good and worth the taste of the food - the fresh bread is a really good starter. We enjoy the chicken Parmigiana.

No one seems to know about this little Italian restaurant because we have never been there when there was a wait. The fresh baked bread and cheese spread is to die for and the rest of the food is good, if nothing special.

This restaurant was very, very dark. It was not ambivant dark either. It was more like, "can't afford the electric bill." We had a party of five. The bill was over $70 and the food was not worth $10. We had the fettuchini (tasted like water). One other person had a rigatoni and something tasted off on it. I had the 'wild mushroom lasagna' and it was too cheesy to the point of gagging. These last two dishes made us ill that evening. The other dish was a Crab Louie salad and upon opening it in the morning after it had been in the fridge all night the shrimp were black. Upon calling the manager he stated it was temperature. I told him it was in a fridge but it was not taken serious enough.

Pros: sorry - none

Cons: too many to list.

Florentines offers good homemade Italian food. Their bread is excellent. No need to wait around like at some chain Italian places.They have seasonal dishes that are always tasty.

PROS: good food, no wait
